about

The longer we wait to address a problem, the more time we spend building it up to be large, obtrusive, and ultimately unbeatable. The older we get, the less time and energy we may feel that we have to fight back against things that are unfair or untrue. After a point, we may feel inclined to let life fly by without seeking a resolution to the things that tear us down, simply just sidestepping whenever an issue presents itself; after all, what’s the point in changing something that we’ve managed to exist despite suffering for so long? Is it really that big of a deal? Why didn’t we act sooner if we recognized it as a problem long ago?

Creating resolution for ourselves doesn’t abide by a rigid structure, though. There is no designated timeline by which our own suffering can be rightfully trivialized. There are solutions to our problems, sure, though our capacity to approach and secure those solutions may take longer if our situation doesn’t foster our ability to reach for them. There are so many paths for us to uncover and follow, and sometimes the paths that are the most meaningful to us get lost as we travel in other directions to maintain more established aspects of our lives or as we deviate into unique chaotic paths. This doesn’t invalidate the stressors we ignore, though it is important to remember that ignoring stressors and repressing our feelings of dissonance will not make them disappear either. Things will surface sooner or later, and at that point know it is never too late the embrace the change that you need!

lyrics

She’s just a gabber punk girl
Living in an 808 world and
All her friends are former enemies
Fought and awed till she couldn’t see anymore
See anymore

Outwardly owning her identity
Clipping kicks and piercing melodies
Clearing up any discrepancies
‘Bout her now and about her before

Look at that gabber punk girl
Writing out all her secrets
Full of a million regrets
Wishing time could be reset

Look at that gabber punk girl
Staring at her reflection declaring

“I can still overcome this
It’s never to late to embrace the change I need
And I’m determined to succeed”

Look at that gabber punk girl (x8)

She’s just a gabber punk girl
Living in an 808 world
Been hurt a million times
Getting hit by shifting divides
She’s just a gabber punk girl
Living in an 808 world
Motivated to get by
For others forced to sacrifice

Validating something they know
That just conflicts with what they’re told
Like the gender they were assigned
Or that their passion wastes their time
And while she’s struggling herself
To figure out direction still
She’ll never fail to lend a hand
If she’s around and there to give

If only that were all that mattered
A single voice in a deadly violent storm
It’s something, sure, it influences us for better
We’ve got to act more collectively to achieve real reform

Look at that gabber punk girl
No longer hung up on regrets
Vocalizing her protest
Fighting for common interests

Look at that gabber punk girl
Going for her ambitions
Identical to me in that
I am just her reflection
Thinking about what could be
Never should feel the same
As bringing dreams to fruition
So then others can exclaim

Look at that gabber punk girl (x4)

Watabou Ann Arbor, Michigan

Watabou is the amalgamation of extensive electronic programming, punishing physical externalization, subconscious realization, and constructive manipulation of myself and my art. It is the peak of my artistic externalization and I hope you understand and enjoy it for what it is. ... more
